Re: mast length

The AFS foils don't have any adjustment so they fly neutral ie left to its own devices it will fly level. Obviously the board has to be set up to do the same. So my board flies level whether it is blowing 10 kts or 20 kts with the same wing. Flying in a straight line is no problem. ultimately the la...

Re: mast length

Sorry, I was saying to Duncan that replacing his 700 front wing with the 800 makes a big difference.

Re: mast length

I have now also had a go on a 70cm mast (naish). If it is deep enough I love my 105. So to add to what I have already said- A board with 70 cm mast attached is noticeably easier to carry/maneuver on the beach. By comparison with the taller foils it feels like you are doing a lot of chop skimming. Du...

Inflatable Windfoiling

I thought it was about time I gave my Novenove duo board a proper try. I have had the board ages but every time I have tried it the wind has either increased too much or dropped away altogether. So this time the wind was a gusty 8 to 12 kts and I used a 6.5 sail. It was one of those days where you t...

mast length

Here is my own obsevations on foil mast length. This is for freeride/race style foils. I started out on a pryde alu foil and then a AFS2 foil both with 85cm masts. Then I changed up to a AFS W95 (95cm mast), I still have that foil but also now have a AFS W105 which as its name suggests has a 105 mas...

Nice list. Of your more recent boards, what is your favorite FSW for light wind cross onshore wave riding?

I am 95kg so for marginal winds it has to be the witchcraft custom 110.

Re: How to land

If the above wasn't really the info you were looking for then - Launching off hard surfaces Take foil board to the water edge Place it upside down and into the wind. You should find that the weight of the board is taken by the footstraps and the nose held off the concrete by your mast foot. Bring th...

Re: How to land

In front of my house is a sea wall with a slipway on it. But the slipway goes sideways down the wall ie parallel with the wall. At high tide it is good as it is straight into deep water. At low tide there is a stony beach. At high tide I can sail right up to the edge of the slipway then jump forward...
